Hotel apartments are quite basic but do the job, located around 15-20 minutes away from the marina. Bar/Restaurant is attached and does very decent food and drink at a reasonable price. Would recommend for those looking to to get the most from there money but don't need fancy rooms

Well just got back, the actual suite we had was not bad, good kitchen, lounge and bedroom, however lack of plug sockets a huge problem but they did supply an extension lead which we used for everything. One of the single beds creaked so much my sister slept on the sofa bed. My bed was lumpy so I put a...

Had a great 2 weeks here at the end of June beginning of July 2016. We did move rooms though just based on the noise from the small swimming pool. Frequented by very excited children at the time and due to the design of the building this dose amplify any noise. The second room we had was just as good...

We have just come back from our weeks stay at Rio Apartments, the apartment its self is great - very big kitchen area, beds and the shower is fab. The receptionist is lovely and really helpful. The only thing that is a slight disadvantage is the distance from the Marina - if we were to ever go back we would...

Stayed here for 3 nights this weekend. Easy check in, beds comfy, decent sized room with kitchenette. Clean and decent sized pool. Rio restaurant also offers great food which is reasonably priced. 20-25 minute downhill walk to the marina, however the tourist train is available round the corner at the Hilton if you don't fancy the walk! Take a walk...

the rooms are spacious, they didnt feel very clean though and there was an 'old' smell to the place, especially in the curtains and chairs. the beds were ok but a little too hard. the shower was powerful but really bad lighting throughout the entire hotel. the kitchen facilities were great but there was only one socket in the kitchen...
